The Amsonia can be late to put out new growth in the spring. For a minute there, I was thinking mine might be a goner. It can also take a little time to mature but once it does it is truly a magnificent plant. Such a pleasure enjoying the airy foliage in the summer breeze!
Amazing shrub that is beautiful from spring thru fall
though the name is long this shrub is a visual delight. in the spring delicate blue flowers appear, in the summer the foliage is a soft green and in the fall it turns on its spectaular changing color. I get many inquiries about this shrub as very few people have it in their gardens - it is a worthwhile investment. mine is planted near the front porch but give it the room it needs. as the description states, hubrichtii is not invasive.
